Nutanix Releases Free Community Edition

A while ago I spoke with Nutanix and learned a bit about their view of the recent trend to bring many of the functions of distributed systems back together in "Hyperconverged" systems. To summarize: Nutanix has developed system software that brings together the functions of industry standard x86-based systems, storage services and storage and offers it as a "software driven virtual computing platform." This makes it possible for systems and storage to be seen as a pool of resources that can be easily expanded as needed.

Historical Industry Trends 

As I’ve pointed out before, platforms originally hosted all an application’s components on a single machine. As the industry sought out ways to improve performance, reliability and scalability, suppliers moved each of those functions into a separate appliance server. While this approach did offer enterprises the ability to apply as much processing horsepower as needed, it also meant that the enterprise datacenter became overwhelmingly complex.
